Speed Entry "Hold on Tight!" (Contest)
Author: Mgoldman

Mance, PA, October 2006 -

I usually aim high but overcast weather led me to this
image.

Mitch, superb concept shot! And your timing was excellent. Thanks for thinking outside of the "cloudy day" box. Days like that often yield the inspiration for some of my favorite photos I've taken over the years.

This one stands out. IMO top 5 for sure. Great idea Mitch. Not many of us think of things like this when we give roll-bys.

WOW! Just wonder how you got the background to move so fast while you stood there to photograph the train.

Nice photo.

Wow! That picture is the functional essence of railroading; Movement and the joined coupler pair. Very nice composition. I intend to download this one.

Later.....

This deserves the Grand Prize for sure! I saw your photo elsewhere, and I was hoping that you would submit it here.

Best Regards,

Nice image Mitch. Saw this on the other site too and really like it.

Off subject but your quote reminds me of the Disneyland Big Thunder RR safety announcement before you leave the boarding station:

"Hang onto your hats and glasses, folks, cause this here's the wildest ride in the wilderness!"
